Before “snowflake” was a term used to describe those who are overly sensitive or coddled, it was simply a term used to describe, well, the snow that fell from the sky. Then, it became a dig used mainly by and toward millennials. Snowflake developed into a mainstream insult in 2016, but its first use can be traced back to 2008. A user on Urban Dictionary defined a snowflake as, “a person who thinks they are OMGUNIQUE!, but, is, in fact, just like everyone else.” In May of 2016, the Urban Dictionary definition was changed to, “An overly sensitive person, incapable of dealing with any opinions that differ from their own.”
